Our pricing reflects the quality and class of our products. When you compare our Aon S1 laptop with similar models like the Dell XPS 13, Lenovo Thinkpad X1, and MacBook Pro, you’ll find our prices competitive. The Aon S1 stands out for its superior weight-to-performance ratio, user-upgradeability, serviceability, customizability, and support.
We also differentiate ourselves by building our laptops to order in the United States, allowing for a wider range of customization options than manufacturers like Dell, Lenovo, and Apple, all of whom conduct their final assembly in China. This approach does come at a higher cost, but it’s a key factor in our unique offering.
Our commitment to U.S.-based manufacturing not only supports local industry but also enables us to offer a level of customization unparalleled by our competitors. For instance, our Aon S1 offers 24,192 distinct configurations, and the Aon L1 boasts 32,256 possibilities, far exceeding the options provided by even the largest competitors, whose assembly processes in China limit their ability to offer such extensive customization.
In many modern laptops, especially thin and light models (like Apple’s MacBook Air or Pro, Dell’s XPS 13, or many of Lenovo’s ThinkPad X1 Carbon models), the memory, storage, battery, and wireless module are often soldered directly onto the motherboard. This is done to save space and allow the laptop to be thinner, but it means that the RAM and SSD are not user-upgradeable.
However, as part of our commitment to the Right to Repair Movement, the memory, storage, battery, and wireless module all MALIBAL laptops are user-upgradeable or user-replaceable.
Coreboot is an open-source project aimed at replacing the proprietary BIOS (Basic Input/Output System) firmware found in most computers. BIOS firmware is the first piece of software that runs when a computer is turned on. It initializes the hardware and starts the operating system.
Coreboot is designed to perform only the minimum amount of hardware initialization necessary to load and run a modern 32-bit or 64-bit operating system. This minimalist approach not only reduces the complexity and potential attack surface of the firmware, but it can also speed up the system boot time significantly.
Coreboot can be used with payloads such as a Linux kernel, SeaBIOS, or UEFI firmware to provide a complete firmware solution. It’s appreciated by users who want to have more control over their hardware, value the transparency and security that come from open-source software, or have specialized requirements.
Coreboot with EDK II is supported on our Aon line of laptops.
USB-C is revolutionizing the way we charge laptops. As a universal charging standard, USB-C has a number of advantages that make it particularly suited for this task.
First and foremost, it offers high power delivery capability – up to 100 watts – which is sufficient to charge even power-hungry laptops. This eliminates the need for proprietary laptop chargers and allows for charging via common adapters, power banks, or even other laptops.
Additionally, USB-C is a reversible connector, meaning it can be inserted either way, making it more user-friendly.
It also supports data transfer and display output, allowing for a single cable to provide power, transfer data, and connect to external monitors.
All MALIBAL laptops can be powered via the Thunderbolt 4 port.
